It's the Men's Turn
3:32: The first quarterfinal is done in the America East with UMBC defeating Stony Brook 76-60. The score here is Loyola 34, Fairfield 21 at the half. Michael Tuck has nine for the Greyhounds and Marty O'Sullivan has eight for the Stags.
Over in Binghamton, the Bearcats lead Vermont 30-23 at the half.
4:05: Loyola winning 49-38 with 12:22, but things are getting close and as usual Greyhounds coach Jimmy Patsos looks like he going crazy on the sidelines.
Over on the America East side, things have tightened as well, as Binghamton and Vermont are tied at 49 with 5:48 to go.
4:23: Things are getting heated up. 55-50 Loyola with 7:43 to go, but about a minute to go, Jonathan Han fouled Brian Rudolph and the two stared each other down before being separated. Then Loyola coach Jimmy Patsos and Fairfield coach Ed Cooley exchanged some verbal spars, but we're back to basketball.
4:29: Vermont came back from down seven at half to post a 65-57 win over Binghamton. Marqus Blakely had 18 for the winner, while Mike Gordon led all scorers with 23.
The Catamounts will take on UMBC at I believe noon on Sunday. I'm pretty sure that game is on TW-3 as is the other semifinal at 2 p.m.
5:35: Loyola hung on to defeat Fairfield 64-59. Gerald Brown scored 18 as the Greyhounds advance to meet the winner of Siena/Manhattan.
